Upcoming at n/a in Oakland is the premier screening in their queer film program “my gaze///yr gaze”, a pair of films selected by Johnny Ray Huston : House of Harrington and Heat. The series is curated by Irwin Swirnoff. “my gaze///yr gaze” is a screening program that explores what cinema seen through a queer perspective can tell us about itself, ourselves, the worlds we live in, and the worlds we imagine. This event is this Wednesday, July 17th at 8pm.
1. An overview of Curtis Harrington’s strange and storied career, house of Harrington braids together a filmed interview with Harrington and clips from his films — pioneering avant-garde works, independent and major studio features, and television fare such as killer bees, starring Gloria Swanson. 25 minutes.
2. Andy Warhol’s “Heat”, directed by Paul Morrissey, is a debauched update of Sunset Boulevard. Boasting sublimely improved, one-on-a-kind supporting performances by Andrea Feldman and pat ast, heat casts a cool comic eye on the opportunistic pairing of “semi-retired” actress/mother Sally Todd (Sylvia Miles) and striving ex-child star Joey Davis (Joe Dallesandro). 102 minutes.
Seating is limited. n/a is wheelchair accessible.
